I am still here and stitching

Good evening,

I can't believe it has been 2 weeks, where has the time gone?  I have 2 Halloween finishes but I forgot to take a picture.  I still need to buy some styrofoam to make my no sew cube. I also completed the Spider by Tempting Tangles from the JCS issue.  Will try to make it into an ornament so I can show you.

I have been working on these 2 projects.  This is for my oldest son.  He loves to read Rage Comics online. It is a troll face.  I bought the 4 different  patterns on Etsy.  I am half way done and it is a fun stitch.  I have decided that 22ct isn't for me but I will make all 4 on 22ct.  My other 2 sons each picked out a pattern so I have a total of 6 to do.  I will probably do the other 2 on Lugana.

This Christmas one is from a Novalee02 SAL from 2012.  It isn't available anymore.  I think I am unhappy with my fabric choice but this is what I had on hand at the time.  You can't really see the white but it is pretty anyway.  I have about 1/3rd left to do.

Thanks for looking,

Some Halloween finishes

Good afternoon everyone.  Hope you are having a great day.  It has been raining all day so I decided to do some finishing.  The first one is a Boo, a freebie from The Prairie Schooler.  I did it on some hand-dyed fabric from Sassy's Fabby's.  I used Fun Fur (from the yarn department) around the border.  I like it very much; but it was such a pain to work with.  The hot glue got tangled up in the fur. Oh well, it was worth the slight aggravation.

I finished stitching this cutie this morning.  It is a free design from Gazette94.  I used some hand-dyed 18ct from Sapphire Stitching.  It is such a cute pillow.

I have another finish but need to get some styrofoam to make it into a no sew cube.

Thanks for looking,
